of militia men stopping to show us the video footage that you mentioned. it is rather gruesome and we haven't been able to independently confirm but it shows the body of what looks like gadhafi, either in the back of a vehicle or on the ground shirtless with blood around his head. he appears to have a bullet hole in his neck or back of his head. we met militia men that reportedly saw the bodies of his son, also in the back of an ambulance. and then we -- militia men with tokens of items that belongeded to gadhafi including a ring and hat and 9 millimeter gun and bottle of shampoo taken from his hideout in sirte. >> as you're mentioning, the u.s. government has not confirmed this death as of yet. as you have been speaking with those militia men on the side of the road, as you've been taking that trip to misratah have they indicated, any of them, that they doubt the reports that are out there right now that indeed gadhafi is dead. >> no, there's been no expression of doubt. the one thing we have been very certain about with our reporting is the mood. everybody here is excited, jubilant and re

u.s. law enforcement agent from the drug enforcement administration and from that point on, this was a sting operation and everything that happened was monitored by law enforcement. two sets of wiring money to a bank account totalling $100,000 and discussing how they might do it and setting a bomb off in a restaurant in washington. all those things were done as the u.s. law enforcement watched interactions with the under cover source. what the two from iran were willing to do was astonishing because they were willing to blow up as many as it took to assassinate the ambassador. >> this is remarkable and what's the thinking behind deploying a mexican drug cartel ? >> simply this was apparently the idea. he said that or at least in discussion with the iranians in iran that they had the idea if you are looking for somebody who will commit crimes that were mercenaries that would do something like this violent for money and the place to go would be members of a drug cartel . one interesting point that is not immediately clear, this one arrests and two people indicted was here in

like drill baby drill. chris joins us with the daily fix. how did that speech work for him today? >> you know, i think what he and his team are trying to do is find a public venue where he is more comfortable. he has been in this race and it has been defined by these four debates that we have had that he has participated in. it's not a good format for him. so i think what they are trying to do is as you said in the opening, push the restart button. give him a place to talk about energy. this is territory where he is somewhat comfortable and give speeches. he is doing more media appearances. i just think they are trying to get that negative perception that this is a falling stock away from him. >> and of course he used a tell prompter. so it all looked good, it played to his virtue. he did the morning shows today and this was matt lauer requesting him about the fact that his wife complained that he was brutalized by his faith. >> isn't it a bit hypocrite call to say you are targeted because of your faith but it was a surrogate for your campaign that introduced it in the first plac
